Info


A Child of Our Time is a secular oratorio by the British composer Michael Tippett 19051998, who also wrote the libretto. Composed between 1939 and 1941, it was first performed at the Adelphi Theatre, London, on 19 March 1944. The work was inspired by events that affected Tippett profoundly: the assassination in 1938 of a German diplomat by a young Jewish refugee, and the Nazi government's reaction in the form of a violent pogrom against its Jewish population-called Kristallnacht. Tippett's oratorio. Composed between 1939 and 1941 and premiered in London in 1944, A Child of Our Time combines the monumentality of Handel and the rhythms of jazz, the massiveness of Beethoven and the lyricism of the madrigal with the passionate pacifism and the loving compassion that was all Tippett's own. For fans of Tippett, though there were surely later works and arguably even greater works, A Child of Our Time is the work nearest and dearest to their hearts.

That A Child of Our Time was a rousing success at its premiere in 1944, three years after its completion, and that it has traveled better and endured longer than anything else in Tippetts extensive canon, surely owe something to the potency of those spirituals. Still, Tippetts musical achievement should not be understated
